State 911 system experiences outage, gets restored

By Lynnwood Times Staff

After a brief outage Thursday afternoon, the statewide 911 emergency response system has been restored. The outage prompted some law enforcement officials to provide alternate emergency numbers for Washingtonians who require immediate aid.

Washington State Patrol Trooper Public Information Officer Ryan Burke tweeted at 4:22 p.m. that he was notified about the statewide 911 outage, but the patrol’s system appeared to be functioning. State officials have yet to confirm what led to the outage.

People needing help were asked to call the 10-digit alternate emergency phoneline, like the one for Snohomish County:

SnoCom (Snohomish County): 425-407-3970
